8 Month Bandiversary

So I'm 2 for 2. I thought about not working out today at all, not out of laziness, (completely, it is my 8 month bandiversary, after all) but because my hubby was home. I have issues working out infront of people. Which is why I don't belong to a gym. Never have. Never will. It's like trying on a swimsuit in a dressing room with bad lighting. (hairy legs and all)

I've actually noticed that I have a lot of work out videos. HELLO!! WHERE WERE THESE BEFORE GETTING BANDED!? *Stuffed in a box with the adult videos probably* KIDDING! Geez, my mother does read this blog, on occasion. *Sorry mom*

But, seriously, where did these come from? I have everything from pilates to dancing videos, to boxing. I might even find some Richard Simmons if I look hard enough. Yeah right, and Jimmy Hoffa might be under my bed. Doubtful, but it could happen.

It actually felt good to be out of bed, had a shower, had my workout and was eating my breakfast by 10:00 am. Kind of an oddity for me since I've gotten laid off from my job. Usually I roll out of bed, whenever and go straight to the computer to do a little homework and blogging. Which I still acheived both of those things today.

Maybe it's starting to click, the pieces are falling together. I read in someones blog yesterday that to see if you're at your sweet spot you need to see if you can eat less than 4 oz of meat. So, out the food scale came. I weighed out 3.7 oz of chicken, cooked up a little rice and steamed some broccoli. Ate less than the 4 oz. One chicken tender, a couple bites of rice and a little of the broccoli (which I had issues with, so no broccoli for me).

I'm at my sweet spot, now the rest is up to me. I'm starting to get some loose skin on my abs, legs, and arms. I really don't want to have surgery to fix this if I can prevent it from happening. There's only one way for me to do that.......get up and move.
